Arbequina is a cultivar of olives. The fruit is highly aromatic, small and dark brown. In Europe, it is mostly grown in Catalonia, Spain. The name comes from the village of Arbeca in Lleida, Catalunya where it was first introduced to Europe in the seventeenth century by the Duke of Medinaceli.
Although sold as a table olive as well, Arbequina olives have one of the highest concentrations of oil, and are therefore mostly used for olive oil production. Oils made from Arbequina are generally buttery, fruity, and very mild in flavor.
